    Everything about this place is wonderful. The indoor museum is a timeline, of course. From the native Americans to modern day times. Best part was seeing the collections of the casinos from days past, swizzle sticks, matchboxes, ash trays, etc. Someone had an awesome picture collection of famous people. So jealous! Outside museum is of a walking trail with old machinery and wooden structures, this part was interesting. Don't forget to pick up a trail guild from the mail box, because you won't know what you're looking at. The houses are the best part!!! Oh my goodness, so fascinating, walking through time! Kids even liked it. The church/wedding chapel, the wedding albums!!! Must flip through!! Thank you to all the couples for sending in your wedding pictures!!! Nice touch. Made my day seeing them! So perfect!

    I loved it! The woman in the museum store was very sweet. Heritage Street was shaded so it wasn't terrible walking through it in 100 degree weather. 10/10 would recommend.

    A must see and do... Excellent. Make sure that you really take the time and not just fly thru it. Was very impressed

    Beautiful tour of historic homes showing Las Vegas history. I could use my bar code to listen to their stories as I walked through the history of Las Vegas.
